From the number of times we heard Foolish Heart, So Many Roads, Liberty, Standing On The Moon, etc etc played live, it doesn't seem to me that Jerry had much of a problem with RH's latter day output for the band. I would agree that these songs don't even come close in comparison with the gems from the two early albums you mentioned, but I certainly wouldn't describe them as stale or examples of a declining talent either. Probably more of an evolution than anything, for better or worse, most would say worse I guess. The lightning that struck twice on WD and AB wasn't ever really repeated in any of the later collaborations, but there's much to love in everything that came later in my opinion anyway.
